Sustainable Harvest International (SHI) is committed to combating malnutrition by teaching families in Belize, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama how to plant organic vegetable gardens and fruit trees and build fishponds and chicken coops, while protecting the environment. Passports with Purpose will help families specifically in Honduras.
“Everyone at Sustainable Harvest International is so grateful to be chosen as this year's Passports with Purpose beneficiary,”
“Malnutrition and insufficient income to meet basic needs are very real threats for millions of families in Central America,” said Katie Aune, Passports with Purpose board member. “What drew us to SHI was their commitment to long-term impact in the communities and their mission to help families and the environment. What’s great is that $10 provides one family with fruit and vegetables so they can eat three nutritious meals.”
On December 2, 2014, the nation will also be participating in #GivingTuesday, and Passports with Purpose invites donors to join others in making a difference. Organizations that wish to donate prizes or become sponsors can contact Passports with Purpose at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“As recent events at the U.S. border demonstrate, it is critical that we help the children and families of Central America,” said Mara Gorman, board member of Passports with Purpose. “Supporting Sustainable Harvest International's efforts in Honduras will keep families together in their homes and will make sure not only that they can feed and support themselves, but that future generations will be able to do the same. Our mission couldn't be more timely - or more important.”
